Wholetime Firefighter

Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service can offer you a satisfying, exciting and varied career as a wholetime (full-time) firefighter. Firefighters are called to advise on fire safety and when they are called to a “shout” they could be dealing with any type of major or minor incident: road, rail or air crashes, floods, chemical spills or rescuing people trapped in confined spaces. Firefighters engage with people in their local communities, through safety advice events, education activities and campaigns. Firefighters require a range of personal skills such as understanding, reliability, flexibility and the ability to work in a team.
